Chapter 173: Ghost Assistant (V)


TL: Resonance

    哧地一声,一辆流线型的跑车停下邵飞渡的身前,车内空无一人,却听到几声滴滴脆响传来

With a whoosh, a streamlined sports car stopped before Shao Feidu. There was no one in the car, but the sound of the car honking could be heard.

    “渡渡,上车,我们去看歌剧。”尚可的笑脸从车窗上模模糊糊地映出来,还带着炫彩的光影效果。

“Get in the car Dudu, let’s go watch an opera.” Shang Ke’s smiling face could be vaguely seen through the car window and even had colourful lighting effects.

    邵飞渡一语不发地上了车,坐在副驾座上。安全带自动为他系好,然后跑车飞一般地冲了出去。

Shao Feidu got in the car without saying anything and sat on the front passenger seat. The safety belt was fastened on him automatically. Then, the sports car rushed out like the wind.

    这辆无“人”驾驶的跑车,一路风驰电掣地飚进市中心,熟门熟路地停进歌剧院后面的停车场。

This “driverless” sports car zoomed into the city centre and parked familiarly at the carpark behind the opera house.

    “走吧。”尚可从车里飘出来,领着邵飞渡朝歌剧院走去。

“Let’s go.” Shang Ke floated out of the car and led Shao Feidu towards the opera house.

    这是邵飞渡第一次独自进入人群密集的场所,鉴于他在国际上的名气,尚可特意给他戴了口罩,免得他被人认出来,惨遭围观。

This is the first time Shao Feidu is going into such a crowded place alone. Given his international fame, Shang Ke made him wear a mask specifically in case he gets recognised by someone and becomes surrounded.

    歌剧的票事先已经订好,只要出示身份卡就能进场。邵飞渡在尚可引领下,找到自己的位置坐下。尚可则舒舒服服地挤在他怀里,手上还拿着零食。虽然晚上可以凝聚实体,但只要他不显形,其他人也看不到他。

The opera tickets have already been booked in advance, Shao Feidu just had to show his ID card to enter. Shao Feidu found his seat under Shang Ke’s leading and sat down. Shang Ke then squeezed himself comfortably into Shao Feidu’s embrace and was even holding onto snacks in his hands. Although he could materialise his body at night, no one can see him as long as he doesn’t manifest himself.

    邵飞渡抱着怀里的鬼,对外界的喧闹毫不在意,目光直直地望着舞台。

Shao Feidu hugged the ghost in his embrace. He didn’t care about the noise from the outside world and was looking straight at the stage.

    四周光线一暗,演出开始。邵飞渡看得十分专注,仿佛整个人都融入歌剧之中,正在这时,坐在前排的一名观众突然转过头来,诡异地转了180°,露出一张面目可憎的脸,冲着邵飞渡狰狞地嘿嘿直笑。

The lights around dimmed and the performance began. Shao Feidu was very focused while watching the show, seemingly fully immersed. At this moment, the person who was sitting in front suddenly turned his head around 180°, revealing his repulsive face as he gave Shao Feidu a ferocious smile.

    邵飞渡身体一僵,好不容易舒缓的精神,骤然紧绷起来。

Shao Feidu’s body stiffened. His mind which finally relaxed tensed up again.

    尚可感受到腰上加重的力度,不爽地对着前面的鬼脸一巴掌拍过去,直接将它拍回了前面那名观众的身体。

Shang Ke felt the strength used to hug his waist increasing. He gave the ghost face in front of him a slap unhappily, causing the ghost to get smacked back into the body of the person in front.

    冤有头债有主,跟谁有仇就找谁,没事别出来刷存在感。尚可义正言辞地警告。

‘Every injustice has its perpetrator and every debt its debtor. If you have an enmity with someone, then find that person. Don’t show yourself unnecessarily.’ Shang Ke warned righteously.

    难怪邵飞渡不敢自己一个人出门,真是走到哪里都能遇到鬼。等他复活后,第一件事就是给他求个符。

No wonder Shao Feidu didn’t dare to go out alone, he meets a ghost everywhere he goes. The first thing Shang Ke will do when he revives is to help Shao Feidu get a talisman.

    邵飞渡见那只鬼被尚可一巴掌搞定了,身体逐渐放松,双手圈住尚可的腰,将他往自己怀里塞。

Seeing that Shang Ke had settled the ghost easily with just a slap, Shao Feidu’s body gradually relaxed. He wrapped his hands around Shang Ke’s waist and pulled him into his embrace.

    “别紧张,继续看演出。”尚可从纸袋里捻出一块肉干,送到他嘴边。

“Relax and continue watching the performance.” Shang Ke twisted out a piece of jerky from the paper bag and delivered it to Shao Feidu’s mouth.

    邵飞渡张嘴,开始慢条斯理地咀嚼。等他吃完肉干,尚可又递上饮料,将他伺候得舒舒服服。

Shao Feidu opened his mouth to receive it and started chewing it slowly. After he finished the jerky, Shang Ke delivered the drink, serving Shao Feidu till he was comfortable.

    好在四周光线昏暗,否则别人一定会看到各种零食自动送入邵飞渡嘴中的诡异画面。

Fortunately, the surroundings were dark. Or else, others would definitely see the strange sight of various snacks delivering themselves into Shao Feidu’s mouth

    两个小时的歌剧结束,邵飞渡跟着人群走出剧院。

After the two hour long opera ended, Shao Feidu followed the crowd out of the opera house.

    刚进入大厅,突然听到不远处传来几声尖叫,随即是一片骚动。

They had just entered the hall when they heard a scream not far away and subsequently a commotion.  

    尚可循声望去,只见一名中年男子捂着胸口倒在地上,一副痛苦的模样,而他身边跪着一对母子,正焦急地在他身上摸索着什么。

Shang Ke looked towards the source of commotion only to see a middle-aged man collapsed onto the floor while clutching his chest, seemingly in great pain. A mother and son were kneeling down beside him, anxiously groping for something on him. 

    “你的药呢,药呢?”

“Medicine, where’s your medicine?”

    男子呼吸急促,根本无法说出话来。

The man was gasping for air and couldn’t speak at all.

    尚可和邵飞渡都看到他的灵魂有一半脱离了身体,等急救人员赶到时,人已经断气了。经过数十分钟的努力,最终也没能将人救回来。

Shang Ke and Shao Feidu saw that his soul was already halfway out of his body. By the time the emergency medical technicians arrived, he had already passed away. They were unable to bring the person back to life despite a long time of hard work.

    这名新死者,明显符合尚可复活的条件,但他不愿意借他复活。因为他有妻子,有孩子,有家庭。尚可背负不起这份责任,到时候还不知道会给那对母子造成多大的伤害。

This newly deceased person clearly fulfills the requirements for Shang Ke’s revival. However, Shang Ke wasn’t willing to use his body to revive. That person has a wife, a child and a family. Shang Ke couldn’t bear this responsibility. He doesn’t know how much he would hurt this mother and son if he does so.  

    第二次复活的机会,就这样被他放弃了。

The second chance of revival was given up by him just like this.

    “走吧,回家,明天去医院看看。”尚可很快打起精神,距离三个月期限还有两个多月,不急。

“Let’s go home. We will go to the hospital tomorrow.” Shang Ke cheered up very quickly. There was still two month plus until the time limit of three months. There’s no need to rush.

    明天去医院有两个目的,一是检查邵飞渡的手指和心理状况,二是寻找符合条件的尸体。

There are two reasons for going to the hospital tomorrow. First, it was for checking up on Shao Feidu’s fingers and his mental condition. Second, it was for Shang Ke to find a body that meets the requirements.

    邵飞渡的手指是在两年前被钢琴盖砸伤的,根据他的复健记录,伤势应该已经痊愈,只是不知道什么原因,他再也无法完整地弹出一首曲子。

Shao Feidu’s fingers were injured by the piano fallboard two years ago. Based on the rehabilitation records, his injury should have completely healed. However, he was no longer able to play a song completely for some reason.

    第二天,依然坐着无“人”驾驶的跑车,邵飞渡来到医院,直接上了五楼的vip诊室,与预约的医生见面。

The next day, Shao Feidu sat in the “driverless” sports car again and arrived at the hospital. He went straight up to the VIP clinic on the fifth floor and met with the doctor they made an appointment with.

    医院是鬼魂聚集之地,换做以前,别说一个人,就算带着一支军队,邵飞渡也不会到这里来。

The hospital is a place where ghosts gather. If it was in the past, Shao Feidu wouldn’t come here even if he brought an army with him, not to mention coming here alone.

    如今有尚可在身边,他觉得那些鬼物也没那么可怕了,至少他们从来不会把自己的头抛来抛去……

Now that he had Shang Ke by his side, he felt that those ghosts aren’t so scary anymore. At least they never threw their heads around… 

    尚可为邵飞渡预约的是一位颇有口碑的老医生。

Shang Ke had made an appointment with a quite well-known old doctor for Shao Feidu.

    邵飞渡坐下后,便将尚可事先给准备他的晶片递给老医生,晶片上详细记录了邵飞渡的病情、日常生活以及恢复进展。虽然只有十天,但足足有好几十页。邵飞渡每一次说话的频率和语句构造,每一个细微的自然反应和动作变化,每天的食谱和饭量,以及运动规律、生活习惯和睡眠质量等等,巨细无遗。

After Shao Feidu sat down, he passed over the chip prepared in advance by Shang Ke to the old doctor. The chip has detailed records of Shao Feidu’s condition, daily life and recovery progress. Although it only has ten days of record, there were dozens of pages. It included how often Shao Feidu spoke, how he constructed his sentence, all his subtle natural reaction and movement changes, the food he ate everyday and the quantity, his exercising pattern, habits and sleeping quality etc. All major and minor details were included.

    老医生看完后,心中颇为震撼。这需要怎样的耐心和细心,才能如此详尽地记下这些?根据这份记录,老医生可以很快对邵飞渡的病情做出初步诊断。

The old doctor was quite shocked after reading it. Just how much patience and care is needed to note down all these in such detail? Based on this record, the doctor was able to make an initial diagnosis for Shao Feidu’s illness very quickly.

    在旁边观察了一会,尚可不由得满意地点点头。这位老医生不仅经验丰富,而是态度温和,对邵飞渡的冷漠,没有丝毫歧视和厌恶。

Shang Ke nodded his head in satisfaction after observing for a while by the side. Not only was this old doctor experienced, his attitude was gentle. He wasn’t discriminative or disgusted when facing Shao Feidu’s coldness.

    暂时将邵飞渡交给老医生,又叮嘱几句,尚可便出去寻找尸体。

He left Shao Feidu with the old doctor temporarily. After saying a few sentences, Shang Ke went out to look for a body.

    寿终正寝者不行,伤重不治者不行,必须保障死前身体功能基本正常,死亡时间最好不超过1小时,还不能拖家带口。

He couldn’t find someone at the end of his life nor could he find a body that is seriously wounded and cannot be saved. He had to make sure that the body was functioning normally before its death. It is preferable that the death time hasn’t exceeded 1 hour and the person isn’t tied down by his family.

    搜寻了许久,尚可找到一个勉强符合要求的目标。这是一名脑死亡者,灵魂已经消失,只能依靠仪器维持生命。

After searching for a long while, Shang Ke found a body that barely met the requirement. The person was brain dead. His soul has already disappeared and could only depend on machines to sustain his life.

    他大约二十上下,长相清俊,看他居住的豪华病房和高昂的治疗费用,想来家世应该不错。尚可又看了一下他的住院时间,差不多已经两年了。

He looked around 20 and was handsome. His family background should be pretty good judging by the luxury ward he was staying in and the expensive treatment cost. Shang Ke then looked at how long he had been staying in the hospital. It has been almost 2 years.

    这么久还没放弃治疗,可见他的家人非常爱他,只是他们并不知道,他们的孩子已经不可能再醒来。

One can see that his family love him very much since they haven’t given up treatment even after so long. However, they didn’t know that their child can no longer wake up.

    “云可煦……”尚可轻轻念出他的名字,回头先查查他的身份和家庭状况,如果没有什么牵扯不清的麻烦,他就借他的身体复活。

“Yun Kexu…” Shang Ke read his name softly. He will go back and investigate his identity and family situation first. If this person isn’t involved in any complicated trouble, then Shang Ke would use his body to revive.

    放下一件心事,尚可回到邵飞渡所在的诊疗室。

After solving one problem, Shang Ke returned back to the consulting room Shao Feidu was in.

    刚飘进来,他便被邵飞渡的目光牢牢锁定,眼中原本隐藏的不安,在见到他后,迅速消失。

Shao Feidu’s eyes were locked firmly on Shang Ke the moment he floated in. The uneasiness that was hidden in Shao Feidu’s eyes disappeared quickly after seeing Shang Ke.

    老医生根据尚可的记录,对邵飞渡进行了一系列的检查和测试,最后同样在晶片上留下了他的诊疗意见,然后交给邵飞渡,嘱咐道:“将这个交给照顾你的人,我相信他知道该怎么办。有他从旁引导,我相信你很快就会恢复的。祝福你,孩子。”

The old doctor gave Shao Feidu a series of inspections and tests based on the record Shang Ke made. Finally, he noted down his medical advice in the chip and passed it to Shao Feidu. He exhorted, “Pass this to the person taking care of you. I believe he knows what to do. I believe that you will recover very soon with him guiding you. Good luck child.”

    老医生朝邵飞渡露出一个温和的笑容。

The old doctor showed Shao Feidu a gentle smile.

    邵飞渡缓缓抬起眼,视线在老医生脸上停留片刻,然后站起身,转身走出了诊疗室。

Shao Feidu looked up slowly and his line of sight stayed on the old doctor’s face for a while. Then, he stood up and left the clinic. 

    从14岁开始,他的身边就只有慕祯,助理和保姆。如今,他第一次在尚可以外的陌生人身上,感觉到了真正的善意。

Ever since he was 14, there was only Mu Zhen, the assistant and the housemaid by his side. Apart from Shang Ke, this is the first time he felt true goodwill from a stranger. 

    尚可说的对,外面的世界,并没有他想象中那么可怕。

Shang Ke was right. The outside world wasn’t as scary as he thinks.

    离开医院后,尚可又带邵飞渡在市区逛了几圈,让他自己去商场买东西,自己去餐厅吃饭,自己搭乘电铁……来来回回一直折腾到黄昏,尚可才带着邵飞渡坐上跑车,返回别墅。

After leaving the hospital, Shang Ke brought Shao Feidu to walk around the city. He let Shao Feidu buy things in the mall, eat in a restaurant and take the train himself… All these lasted until dusk before Shang Ke brought Shao Feidu back to the sports car and returned back to the villa.

    邵飞渡望着远处的夕阳,眼中光华闪烁,看得出他很开心。

Shao Feidu looked at the sun setting in the distance. His eyes were bright and one could tell he was very happy.

    不过这种开心,在回到别墅后便荡然无存。因为慕祯回来了,在他身边还站在面色难看的助理吉布。

However, all this happiness disappeared the moment he returned back to the villa. Mu Zhen was back and there was also assistant Gibbs who was standing beside him with an ugly expression.

    “渡少,你去哪里了?”慕祯斥责道,“你不知道外面有多危险吗?万一你出了什么事,你让我怎么向邵老先生交代?”

“Where did you go young master Du?” Mu Zhen rebuked, “Don’t you know how dangerous it is outside? How am I supposed to explain to Mr Shao if something happens to you?”

    邵飞渡似乎没听见,径自从他身边走过。

Shao Feidu seemed like he didn’t hear Mu Zhen and walked right past him.

    “站住!”慕祯拦住他,疑惑地在他身上扫视,“你平时一个人连门都不敢出,这次怎么会突然跑出去,谁带你出去的?”

“Stop!” Mu Zhen stopped him and glanced suspiciously at him. “Usually, you don’t even dare to step out of the door alone. Why have you suddenly gone out today? Who took you out?”

    邵飞渡望着前面的楼梯,如雕塑般默然不语。

Shao Feidu looked at the stairs in front of him and was quiet like a sculpture.

    “给我说话,你又不是哑巴!”慕祯猛地提高音量。投资出了问题,这家伙还来给他添乱,实在闹心。

“Talk, you’re not mute!” Mu Zhen raised his voice. Something went wrong with his investment and this fellow still came and added trouble for him. How troublesome.

    邵飞渡冷冷地瞥了他一眼。

Shao Feidu gave him a cold glance.

    慕祯被他看得背脊发寒,随即恼羞成怒道:“几天不见,你居然学会瞪人了!我让你作的曲子你作好了吗?”

Mu Zhen felt chills up his spine after being looked at by Shao Feidu. He immediately said in anger, “It has only been a few days since we last saw each other and you actually learned how to glare at someone! Have you finished composing the music I asked you to?”

    邵飞渡从来不与人对视,但此刻的他,目光有神,犹如两道锐利的刀锋。

Shao Feidu has never stared at someone in the eye before. However, the current him was staring at Mu Zhen with eyes as sharp as blades.

    难道他的病情开始好转了?这可不妙!慕祯不得有暗暗心惊。

Don’t tell me his condition is improving? This isn’t good! Mu Zhen was secretly alarmed.

    “从今天开始,没有我的允许,你不准踏出别墅一步。”慕祯用不容置疑地语气说道,“我会帮你雇佣几个保镖,负责保护你的安全。”

“From today onwards, you’re not allowed to go out of the villa without my permission.” Mu Zhen said with a tone that didn’t allow any rejection, “I will hire a few bodyguards for you and they will be in charge of protecting you.”

    邵飞渡沉默片刻,突然开口吐出三个字:“我不要。”

Shao Feidu was silent for a moment before suddenly spitting out three words, “I don’t want any.”

    “什么?”慕祯一愣,完全没想到他会反对。

“What?” Mu Zhen was stunned. He never thought that he would oppose it.

    “我的别墅,我不要保镖。”邵飞渡再次看向他,眼神幽暗,配上他冷漠的表情和高大的身材,给人一种难以言喻的压迫感。

“This is my villa. I don’t want any bodyguards.” Shao Feidu looked at him again. His gloomy eyes coupled with his cold expression and tall figure gives people an indescribable sense of oppression.

    “你……你……”慕祯紧张地看着他,一时间说不出话来。

“You… you…” Mu Zhen looked at him nervously and was momentarily speechless.

    旁边的吉布也是一脸惊愕。在邵飞渡身边工作这么久,还是第一次听到他说这么长的话,而且咬字清晰,语句流利,几乎与正常人无异。

Gibbs who was at the side also had a face full of astonishment. He had been working at Shao Feidu’s side for so long and this was the first time he heard him say such a long sentence. In addition, his pronunciation was clear and he was speaking smoothly, almost the same as a normal person.

    尚可见此情景,高兴地冲邵飞渡竖起两根大拇指。

Seeing this, Shang Ke happily gave Shao Feidu two big thumbs up.

    邵飞渡说完那句话,便不再理会慕祯,转身朝自己房间走去。

After Shao Feidu finished speaking, he no longer cared about Mu Zhen. He turned and headed towards his room.

    慕祯呆站了许久,随后转头狠狠瞪向吉布:“这到底是怎么回事?不是让你装了监控吗?怎么一点异常都没有发现?”

Mu Zhen stood there blankly for a long time. Then, he turned and glared at Gibbs. “What exactly is going on? Didn’t I ask you to install cameras? Why didn’t you notice any abnormality at all?”

    吉布哭丧着脸说:“监控里面真的什么都没有啊。”

Gibbs said with a long face, “There was really nothing on the camera.”

    “把所有监控录像都发到我邮箱,我亲自来检查。”慕祯快速朝楼上瞥了一下,随即压低声音道,“渡少的药吃完了,再去找徐医生开点。”

“Email me all the surveillance recordings, I will check it personally.” Mu Zhen gave a quick glance upstairs, then lowered his voice and said, “Young master Du has finished his medicine, go get more from Dr Xu.”
